COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Sculpin IPA is a great example of what got us into brewing in the first place. After years of experimenting, we knew hopping an ale at five separate stages would produce something special. The result ended up being this gold-medal winning IPA, whose inspired use of hops creates hints of apricot, peach, mango and lemon flavors, but still packs a bit of a sting, just like a Sculpin fish.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a little lighter than I remember regular Sculpin though. A transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of hops and spicy pepper. Tastes like it smells, only more pepper forward, with an average mouthfeel. Alright, but the habanero masks the delicious base.

Tap at Savor. This was just overall wonderful stuff. The habanero spice and heat really integrate well with the west coast boisterous IPA style. Citric and spicy with a slightly spicy hot finish. Pour me another!

Draft at lures, pots clear amber with low head. Aroma is sweet malts and pine hops. Taste is rich sweet malt and nice hop bitterness, the pepper lingers o the finish.

DrSilverworm (6455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2013
9oz on tap at Yard House in Cincinnati. Clear golden - orange color. Good thin white head. Decent bits of lace. Not bad-looking. Big, spicy, toasty habanero kick in the aroma. Nice biscuity malt profile. Light grassy, light citrusy hop. Only light because of the huge habanero chile flavor that is up front, in the body, and in the finish... On par with Ruination Habanero, pretty much the same type and level of habanero heat. Smooth, softer lighter carbonation, lightly dry texture. Medium to bigger body. Moderate bitter taste, big spicy hot heat, minimal sweet. I got through this habanero IPA easier than I did with the Ruination cask version.. Maybe the carbonation helped. Maybe this style of beer is growing on me. A very enjoyable 9 ounces.

On tap at the Common Table. Yellow with a white head. The aroma has a bit of pine but what really comes through is the habanero. The flavor is similar. While there may be a bit of the IPA character in there, I get a ton of hot, spicy pepper. As I drink more, the beer gets hotter and hotter. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Interesting, but the pepper was too overwhelming for me.

Aroma is hop obscured by pepper. Color was a bit pale for an ipa, but otherwise characteristic ipa orange with a large white head. Taste is immediately pepper, with a finishing hop sweetness. Palate is full of fun burn. Probably the best pepper beer I've had, butter than most pale pepper tries.

Aroma of habenero, citrus and pine. Pours amber with light white head. Sweet, bitter and spicy. The spice is much less dramatic than last year’s version, its actually drinkable without getting heartburn. Its much more enjoyable.

(Draught at Beachwood) clear medium gold, fine white bubbles. Nose of habanero, hop candy, candied citrus zest, and light pine. Taste of candied citrus, pine, lightly spicy, warming plate linger.
